“It was fully healed and looked to be in good condition,” she explained about checking the man’s skin. With that in mind, the two got to work dreaming up a tattoo.

Apparently, it was the man’s idea to include the burn texture in the tattoo design. The result? A creative and incredible display of artistry on his bicep.
